Stencils make an impression 

Stencilling is a decorative technique familiar to everyone. Patterned floral borders are always useful, but here we are looking for a more flamboyant, mural-like approach to decoration.

Floral motifs such as leaves, flowers and branches are placed asymmetrically on the wall, either larger than life or as a continuous surface in wallpaper fashion. Border patterns may run along the skirting board or around a door, or they can be used to divide a wall. Large individual items such as characters or various texts are also now popular.


Large stencils can be cut out of 0.25 mm or 0.5 mm PVC layout sheet or printed out as stickers. When making your own stencil, spray sticker glue on the back to keep it fixed to the wall during painting. Professionally produced sticker stencils are self-adhesive. Designing the cut of the stencil to ensure that all parts of the stencil hang together is a tricky business.


An individual stencil shape can be a piece of modern art in its own right. This leaf motif has been applied with a negative stencil.
